So Friday night we ordered take-out from our favorite Chinese restaurant. Zoe had gymnastics so she & I picked it up on the way home. Well, when Zoe got out of the car, she took her blankie in with her. Unknown to me, she must have set it down & realized she left it there when we got inside our house. Since the restaurant is about 15 minutes away, I told Zoe that I would call to make sure "Blankie" was there & ask them if I could just pick it up the next day.

When I called the restaurant, the sweet Chinese girl answered the phone. I explained to her that I had just been in there with my daughter & was wondering if Zoe had left her blanket there. She quickly asked if my little girl was the Chinese girl. I told her yes & then she told me that yes, the blanket was indeed there & that I could pick it up anytime.

I got off the phone & told Zoe that "Blankie" was there & that I would pick it up the next day. I also told her that the girl who answered the phone asked if my daughter was the little Chinese girl that was just in there.

Zoe's reply - "Huh? I wonder how she knew I was Chinese......probably my skin!"

Love it! When I took Collin in the Chinese restaurant on Chinese New Year the girl working there kept trying to feed him from the buffet as we waited for our take-out...literally spoon feeding him. It's just their way, I kept telling myself!
